#HotTakei: Hillary Clinton Donor Calls Prominent African-American Legal Scholar a ‘Clown in Blackface’

Earlier this week, Star Trek nerd icon and Clinton Foundation donor George Takei unleashed a verbal tirade against African-American Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, calling the prominent legal scholar a "clown in blackface" who "does not belong on the Supreme Court" because he is "a disgrace to America." (And, presumably, because Thomas is black.)

Records indicate Takei, a raging liberal, has donated as much as $5,000 to the Clinton Foundation and thousands of dollars to Democratic candidates, including Hillary Clinton. His racist comments are being hailed as an "EPIC Takedown" on left-wing websites. Takei is basically right, they argue.

Former Senator Jim Webb, who is white, declared on Thursday his candidacy for the Democratic nomination for president. The Democratic field currently consists of five white candidates, most of them elderly, and zero minorities.

Hillary Clinton can prove she's not a racist by immediately condemning Takei's remarks. But will she?
